The slow cooker is such a lifesaver, but the best kind of slow cooker meals are ones where all you do is dump your ingredients in, set it to cook, and walk away. No searing, no sauteeing, just add the ingredients, go about your life, and come back to a delicious meal. That’s exactly the kind of meal this Pork Chops and Peppers is. It’s just a handful of simple ingredients that you toss in and let cook while you go about your day and you end up with a seriously delicious meal of fork-tender pork chops and sweet-saucy peppers and onions.

This is a four-ingredient meal. Seriously. That’s it. There’s pork chops, onions, bell peppers, and barbecue sauce. That might not seem like much, but the peppers and onions slow cook into soft and sweet deliciousness while the meat becomes so tender it falls apart at the touch of a fork and the barbecue sauce ties it all together with its tanginess.

It’s so simple. It’s so good. And it makes your life easy. Or at least dinner, which is still a pretty big win!
